New Strategy: Putin Sends 75 Black Kamikaze Drones to Ukraine

Recently, images were published on the internet showing the remains of “Shahed” drones used in an attack on Kyiv. These photos reveal the striking black color of the drones.

According to various reports, on Saturday in the early morning hours, the Russian forces deployed 75 kamikaze drones, also known as “Geran”. During a telethon, Yuriy Ignat, the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Air Force, stated to the German news website Münchner Merkur, “The dark coloration of the latest Iranian Shahed models could significantly hinder their interception at night.” He also noted that the Russian military is continuously working on improving the Shaheds. The use of the black color could be a strategic attempt to disrupt Ukrainian air defense.

Previously, the Russian forces had already improved the drones they received from Iran by using special composite materials for light-reflecting surfaces.

These claims have not been independently verified or confirmed. Therefore, they should be evaluated with caution. In war, it can be advantageous for conflicting parties to deliberately spread false information to strengthen their own position or weaken the opponent’s.
